Review:

Excerpted from JAMA Book and Media Reviews dated August 12, 2008  by Scott R. Lillibridge, MD, School of Rural Public Health, Texas A&M Science Center College Station " The US Army Medical Department's Textbooks of Military Medicine series has just released a new volume, Medical Aspects of Biological Warfare.  It is a vast compendium of newarly 600 pages detailing the history and current state of biological warfare, ranging from countermeasures to legal dimensions.  This epic work is the most comprehensive and up-to-date medical text related to the use of countermeasures for biological agents in warfare and terrrorism. "  . . . " The addition of chapters dealing with biosecurity, legal issues of biological research, and consideration for strategic threats from emerging infectious diseases serve to broaden the appeal of this text well beyond the military community." . . . "In conclusion, this text is a "must have" reference document highlighting the history of biological warfare and the biodefense of teh United States."
